AKAWN Monitoring, our first product, has now been released to market as version 17.10.02.
It was a mammoth task and a great relief to finally have something to show for the effort.
So what does it take to produce a SQL Server monitoring product?
~ 2,700 man hours
~ 95,400 lines of written code
Learning a programming language and the quirks that it initials
A serious amount of designing, testing, further designing and then more testing in a continuous loop
~ 550 coffees :)
I’m sure there’ll be a couple of things that got by the copious amount of testing, but the product appears to be very stable and the documentation quite comprehensive.
It doesn’t end there, with SQL Server 2017 testing out the way, the focus now moves onto integrating Linux and cloud database support, query performance analysis, enhanced reporting and portal development.
So we hope you enjoy the product and help to make it the best one out there.
The following patches have just been released and all have an associated security update so they may have already been applied. The security update appears to be due to Dimension security being ignored by Power BI Desktop in SQL Server Analysis Services (Multidimensional model).
